    A white light blazing deep
    Through the wasteland searching we
    Soaring birds now hunt the brow
    As I, thirsty, gripped with hunger now

    Clear sighted, painful ends to win
    The battle of the me so wafer thin
    The line between the devil's teeth
    And that which cannot be repeat

    Push me in, take me t'ward
    The subject in the subject taught
    A war without a war within
    Join head and heart for to begin

    Bemused we flinch, no easy work
    For invited men are loath to shirk
    The line between the devil's teeth
    And that which cannot be repeat

    War work
    War work
    War work

    Hey, man, how will you feel
    When all you have and all you own
    Is your only true friend
    When above you in the firmament

    Flow the blood of the prophets
    Out of your reach
    From your aching speech
